Artful Grief: Tapping into Creativity and Imagination - Sharon Strouse
Artful Grief is a creative and imaginative approach to self-care. It is grounded in the willingness to explore something new rather than your level of artistic ability. In this session, art therapist and author, Sharon Strouse will introduce three simple creative modalities that are easily accessible, quieting and relaxing. Learn how magazines, scissors, glue, an array of household items, things collected from your backyard, and a printed circular image or mandala can open the door to self expression and playfully ease your way through these extraordinary times.
